Sindianas' Recipes: Fit Balls



One of the girls on Snapchat (also a fellow blogger whom I share my name with, check her out hereasked me why I never share recipes of the food I post on social media. It got me reminiscing of the fact that creating food used to be my favorite activity and I really enjoy it, therefore I should 'post what I preach'. And I used the word creating instead of baking, cooking etc. because I neither use nor read any recipes and always create something by my own guts. This recipe is one of them. I didn't measure anything so you add the ingredients in a ratio you prefer. I also created a new section on my blog, Recipes, so you can expect more of these. Let's dig in! (I mean first you have to make them, then you can dig in ;))




What you will need:

  • cacao powder
  • dates or dried apricot
  • almonds and other nuts
  • 1 orange (juice and a bit of pulp)
  • water (a few drops!)
  • chia seeds
  • coconut flour
  • vanilla extract or cinnamon (optional)


Bam! That's it. You simply put everything in a food processor (or smoothie maker) and blend the ingredients until you get some sort of a 'dough' and start rolling smaller sections of it between your palms until you get some balls (yes, I can sense the awkwardness). If it doesn't hold well together, keep adding the coconut flour until it is right. I had to add quite a lot of it at the end because I added way too much water. Finally, I also rolled every other ball in some coconut flour, because I really like coconut and I think it also looks good on a plate.


My kitchen suddenly started to smell heavenly, like one of those chocolate covered Frutabela bars. I invited some friends over to give them a taste and the feedback was amazing. I would like to know whether you liked more recipes like that? Should you find  not knowing the measurements confusing, I can actually put the effort it and start measure things as I create. Let me know in the comments below!

Love always,
